LOL well can't say I'm supprised it's the NGP I'm after..

and this is why this device will fail if you want to take it seriously for gaming. As a phone it's nice though. It's an android device - ofc it was going to be hacked. Now will anyone want to make serious games for it after this? Doubt it.

Don't sue anyone Sony ;)

Wait, I'm confused... Didn't Sony unlock the bootloader for all their latest Android smartphones? How do you hack something that is already intentionally wide open?

I think Sony released the bootloader or this one

LOL hacked?..

It's an android device, running on an opne source OS.. it's homebrew friendly lol

That's right, rooting most Android devices is usually fairly easy. And in this case it looks like SE intentionally made it even easier by giving you the tools

Wow that was quick lol, I might actually get it now.

where is the surprise ? it's an android phone

gaffyh2759d ago

True, but Sony gave the bootloader to everyone, so it was even more likely to get hacked. I can't see why they did that.

Baka-akaB2759d ago

because unlike consoles many buy android phones to "jailbreak" it to begin with .

They can't seem to catch a break
